    Does NOT come with any extra station! 73x140cm
    The width of this item is only 73cm which is surprisingly short. Im thinking i the space between the chest press might be too narrow

    no offence bro, but they all S*** imo.

    Buy your self a Squat rack and a Olympic bar and a bench with about 100kg in weights, would be more beneficial to your self IMO.

    alot of those links dont work buddy.

    what are you looking to do with the home gym? the problem is there very restrictive to what you can do, have you looked into a bench and free weights? would cost so much less and you have abit more rang of exercises you can do

    I have edited the links and added pics as well.

    Thanks for the answers guys.

    I thought about buyin a bench as well. In fact, it was the first thing i looked when i started searching. But than im a lazy guy and if i buy a bench, barbell and dumbbell set, i know i wont be able to carry on with my trainings. I will do it one day, the next day i'll say "nah, i cant be bothered" I have tried that with dumbbels and it hasnt worked for me!

    But if its a multigym next to my computer, im sure i'll use it more often than i'd do with using a bench. Im 1.82m tall and 62kg!!! So i cant really lift much weight and home gym is safer than benches i believe.

    I just want to get tonned. I have recently started a weight gain programme and i have to train at the same time.

    Just buy yourself Wii fit!:thumbsup:
